For millions of Latin Americans, the Colombina factory in La Paila is the place where sweet moments are made. Photographs by CHRISTOPHER PAYNE OCT. 24, 2018 by INGRID ROJAS CONTRERAS Like any good immigrant, I know on which bodega shelves to find the food portals to my childhood. I know where to turn, where to crouch, where to bow before the ready-made boxes to make Colombian buñuelos, pandebonos, pandeyucas and arepas. But the one food item I cannot find in San Francisco is the candy of my childhood. I grew, as we say in Colombia, a punta de Bon Bon Bum. The strawberry lollipop was such a central part of my diet, I wouldn’t be surprised if I was made of equal parts Valle del Cauca sugar and red dye No.40. Bon Bon Bums (pronounced like the French bonbon and the English “boom”) are lollipops … [Read more...] about Inside Colombia’s Beloved Candy Factory

By MARY H. K. CHOI OCT. 24, 2018 Candy is controversial. Scouring the globe in search of the sweet stuff reveals just how different our palates are — and how much we have in common. Candy is controversial. Scouring the globe in search of the sweet stuff reveals just how different our palates are — and how much we have in common. By MARY H. K. CHOI OCT. 24, 2018 Photo Illustration by MASSIMO GAMMACURTA Whenever I land in a new country, before I’ve even left the arrivals hall, my mind turns to shopping.

No, the pressing calculus as I make my way to baggage claim is driven by drugstores, kiosks, supermarkets and vending machines. In a new port of call, I like to know what sort of candy I’m dealing with. As with breakfast foods, I believe candy is often tastier the less expensive it is. I like my confections approachable. Low-rent. Basic. Shot through with … [Read more...] about These Are the World’s Best Candies. Want to Fight About It?

Ashley Collins Naples Daily News Published 2:32 p.m. UTC Aug 3, 2018 Teresa Hoover keeps busy in the kitchen, adding the final touches to a pink bone-shaped birthday cake inside her Naples bakery. Her final creation looks like a treat for an animal-loving child, which is partly true — if your child has four legs and gives you slobbery kisses when you walk through the door. On a recent Wednesday, Hoover baked the dog-friendly cake using chickpea flour, banana and peanut butter. The sugar-less treat was covered with icing made of mashed potatoes, goat's milk and organic coconut oil.
